Can anybody help me out here?

I would like to play this game, it's sprite based, and turn based, so I suspect it shouldn't need to much in the way of graphics.

It's requirements are:
Intel Pentium III 500 MHz or better
* 128 MB RAM
* 8 MB Direct3D compatible graphics card
* Windows 98/ME/2000/XP/Vista or newer
* Requires DirectX 9.0c or newer

I have a pentium 4 with 3 GHZ, 500mb Ram, a 82865g intel Graphics Controller chip with 96 mb, Windows XP and DirectX 9.0c.

When I launch the game it Crashes straight away, with no useful error message. I have 3D Analyze, but no idea of how to configure it (I tried copying the set-up for Fifa 09, but that didn't work).

There is no slot on my mother board for a graphics card (I took it into the pc shop, and thats what they told me), but I'm thinking that because it's not high end graphics I'm after, perhaps a USB graphic card might work? or maybe somebody can point me in the right direction to get analyze to do all the work for me.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

I agree that the intel onboard graphics should be able to handle that game.
Did you install the latest drivers ?

Which mainboard do you have ? Check with CPU-Z :

Thanks for taking an interest!

I have an IBM motherboard with an intel i865p/PE/G/i848P chipset
The BIOS is 2AKT51AUS.

This doesn't mean much to me, but if you see somthing I should know, please tell me.

I've updated the drivers (no idea if they were out of date or not before), but still no success.

Any suggestions about which 3DA features need to be checked? Or is it possibly not a graphics problem, and rather somthing else, in which case a suggestion as to what else it ould be would be appreciated.

The bios you mentioned pointed me to an IBM ThinkCentre M50.
Is that your PC ?
Then it could have a motherboard like this :


This means you can insert an AGP graphics card or at least a PCI graphics card.
That way you don´t have to mess around with the crappy onboard graphics.

No, thats not my pc, although that is the Bios that cpu-z tells me.

This is what I see when I open up the box, although maybe I can take something out to put a card in?

Talking to the game developer, he says it seems that my computer is running out of memory before the game is loaded (maybe graphic memory?), but I have plenty of free space, and 1512 virtual memory, so I'm not sure.

Anything else I could try?

Sorry, can you provide a picture with higher resolution ?
It is hard to recognize details, at the bottom there could be a PCI riser, but I am not sure.
